Insurance Defense Litigation
Tarle Law is on panel for and sought by insurance companies throughout California and Texas for our veteran experience in handling insurance defense litigation matters. Led by respected attorney Cynthia Pertile Tarle, our team is known for dispute resolution and the effective results we have achieved for clients in defending general liability as well as construction defect litigation, construction accident litigation, premises liability, personal injury, product liability, environmental, and transportation. Our firm is also actively retained to defend insureds following incidents related to the oil and gas sector.
Our team is retained to monitor and investigate pre-litigation claims, and implement early response methods which serve to further protect the exposure of the insured should litigation subsequently commence. We work with a network of professional consultants and experts in the industry to investigate the circumstances involving the claims or accident in order to provide the insured and the carrier with a better understanding of the legal options available and the potential exposures involved.
Our attorneys are experienced litigators, prepared to direct litigation on contractual and extra-contractual liability. We are mindful of costs to the client and are understanding of providing budgets to assist the client and carrier in managing the litigation.
Our Firm’s experience with insurance coverage issues also makes us highly-sought after in multi-party and court designated complex cases where issues such as indemnity and additional insured obligations frequently control the outcome of mediated and negotiated settlements. Our experience and background in insurance consulting brings depth to our attorneys’ abilities to assess risk transfer for our clients, and the implications and complexity of additional insured insurance obligations and insurance carrier intervention actions, as well as the potential impact of state’s various anti-indemnity laws. Our team of attorneys is well-armed to address issues involving tendering to and working with claims adjusters in litigation involving multiple lines of coverage, including builders’ risk, commercial general liability, property and casualty policies, environmental, as well as the unique issues arising out of manuscripted Controlled Insurance Programs (CIPs) and WRAPS, including the dynamics that enrolled and non-enrolled contractors present in any given case.
